Merv Merzoug Joins as Director in New York City; Elizabeth Knapp Joins as Executive Assistant to Boston Office Leader Tom Lynch
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SierraConstellation Partners, LLC (SCP), a national interim management and advisory firm to middle-market companies in transition, today announced that it has hired three professionals and staff across its Los Angeles, New York and Boston offices. The new hires add expertise and depth to SCP’s bench of strategic advisers and staff as the firm continues to grow nationwide.
To strengthen its team of senior professionals, SCP has hired Bill Partridge as a Managing Director. Bill will be based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but will report through the Los Angeles office. Bill brings to SCP over 20 years of corporate finance, restructuring and capital markets experience across industries, particularly in the technology sector. Prior to SCP, Bill spent several years as an interim manager and consultant to private companies headquartered in the Bay Area. Bill received a BBA in Finance from the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.
“I’m eager to get to work with Larry and the team during what is certainly an interesting time to be a turnaround leader,” said Partridge. “Business of all stripes are looking for answers in the chaotic world we find ourselves in. My goal is to bolster the case that SCP is the firm of choice for middle market companies who need help.”
In addition to Partridge, SCP has made two professional and staff hires:
- Merv Merzoug joins SCP as a Director in the firm’s New York office. Merv has over a decade of experience both as an entrepreneur and as an investment management professional, with a focus on the high-yield and distressed fixed income markets. Prior to joining SCP, Merv was the Head of Strategy and Marketing for ARCM, a quantitative fixed income hedge fund, and the co-founder of London Plane Equities (LPE), a biotech firm. Merv received his bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College (with honors) and his MBA from Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
- Elizabeth Knapp joins SCP as Executive Assistant to Tom Lynch, the head of the firm’s Boston office. She has worked in multiple industries, including supply-chain services, cybersecurity, and medical device manufacturing. Prior to SCP, Elizabeth was executive assistant to the CEO and leadership team of OnProcess Technology, Inc.
“I’m glad to welcome Bill, Merv and Elizabeth to our team as we continue to grow our presence across the country,” said Larry Perkins, SCP’s Founder and CEO. “With so much turbulence in global markets, we see an opportunity for our firm to help middle-market companies navigate what will surely be a defining transition period for our economy. It’s at times like these where turnaround advisers get to roll up their sleeves and show what they’re made of. We’ve built an incredible team at SCP, and we’re ready for anything.”
These newest hires underscore SCP’s continued nationwide expansion. Earlier in 2020, the firm announced the opening of its New York office, and throughout 2019 the firm added two managing directors and deepened its operations and staffing teams.
